Vista SP1 is coming.  It is odd, though, that the release will not be available in advance of the December holiday season in order to spark PC sales.

Quote:
Microsoft Corp. has finally broken its silence on the timing of the release of the highly anticipated Windows Vista Service Pack 1, saying the software updates should be in final release in the first quarter of next year, with the company shipping off a beta next month to 10,000 to 15,000 testers.

The company stressed that SP1, "is not a delivery vehicle for new features," said David Zipkin, senior product manager for Microsoft.  SP1 will include OS updates strictly to fix bugs and enhance the performance, reliability and application compatibility of Vista, he said. . . .

However, Vista SP1 will be a significantly smaller download than Windows XP SP2 was, he said.  XP SP2 was more than 100M bytes in size, while Vista SP1 will be about 50M bytes, he said. . . .

Specifically, SP1 will fix performance features such as allowing for the computer to resume functionality after being in the Hibernate or Standby state, and also reduce the time it takes between a user hitting CTRL/ALT/DELETE to get the log-in prompt so they can log on to Windows, Zipkin said.

Microsoft also in SP1 will improve the performance of Internet Explorer 7 to speed Javascript processing and reduce CPU (central processing unit) utilization so sites running AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) can run faster, he said.

On the reliability side, the update will reduce the likelihood of Vista crashing from a vague "search protocol handler" error message that users have reported happens frequently, Zipkin said.  The company also fixed other common crashes users have reported through Microsoft's automatic reporting service. . . .

To date, Microsoft reports that about 60 million consumer licenses for Vista have been sold, and 42 million licenses have been sold to businesses through its volume licensing program.
